How welcome are nubcakes in this swap? Cheesy I'm thinking about joining, but I'm more of a noncommitted fangirl than pagan/wiccan. I do love the concept though, and you still see a lot of Yule things as common christmas items here. It seems like a really fun swap Smiley

Yayayayayay! Yule is probably my top favorite holiday in the world! I had to miss the Samhain swap, so I am so excited that this is starting so early! Can't wait to get started crafting! ^_^

I think I can handle the size of this one!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

I'm in! Had to miss the Samhain Swap too, but this sounds perfect for me.

And Melladh, "nubcakes" may be my favourite new word of the whole year! Thanks for that!

Hmm...I've always sort of wanted to join one of the Pagan swaps, but haven't done so yet.

I haven't been actively "Pagan" since I met my atheist husband - maybe this is the push I need in the right direction. Undecided...
